Every last Thursday of the month, Alberta street erupts in creativity, fire, and music. Lining the streets are hundreds upon hundreds of local artists, from those well established to those that recently climbed out of a van. From punk rock clowns to bands of stilt walkers to fire eaters this is bar-none the best artistic party and fair in Portland. It starts around 5pm and rolls on into the wee hours of the night, getting wilder as it progresses.
